We visit the Chinese store here twice a month and fill up our freezer after each of our visits. I wanted to make something with prawns but a bhaji which can be eaten with chapatti. Thought of making some gravy wala dish but gave up on that idea. Finally I thought of making one my favorite prawns dish without gravy. This is a quick recipe and will take not mre than 15 mins from start to end.
1/2 lb prawns
1 tomato/ few pieces (4-5) raw mango/ 2-3 kokum
1 cup fresh coconut
1 tbl Spn garam masala
1 tbl spn chili powder
½ tbl spn halide powder
Salt as per taste
1 tbl spn oil
Pre-preparation: Clean prawns and de-vein them. Rub a pinch of chili powder and turmeric powder and keep aside for 15 mins
Heat oil in a wok. Add onions. And sauté for 5 mins. Add potatoes, tomatoes ( raw mangoes). Sauté for 2-3 mins. Add prawns and Sauté for 2 minutes. The aroma will fill the room. Add turmeric powder, chili powder and garam masala. Add ½ cup water and cook till all the water has evaporated and potatoes have been cooked. Garnish with cilantro. Serve this chapatti or as side dish with fish-curry rice.
